'Indiana Jones 5' Moved to 2023 Following Harrison Ford's Injury
Paramount Pictures

The upcoming fifth 'Indiana Jones' movie has been pushed back for a full year after the main actor suffered an injury which prompted the production to get halted.

AceShowbiz - The fifth "Indiana Jones" film has been bumped to 2023 while several Marvel movies, including "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever", have also been moved back.

Disney executives have delayed the release of the fifth "Indiana Jones" instalment by a full year. The untitled film was originally scheduled to be released on 29 July, 2022 and will now be out on 30 June, 2023.

Part of the reason for the delay is likely to be star Harrison Ford's shoulder injury, sustained in June (21), which forced the closure of the production for three months.

A number of Marvel sequels have also been pushed by a few months in 2022: "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness" moves from 25 March to 6 May, "Thor: Love and Thunder" has been bumped from 6 May to 8 July, and "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever" will now be released on 11 November instead of 8 July.

Also affected by the reshuffling is the "Captain Marvel" sequel, "The Marvels", which is now due for release in early 2023 instead of November, 2022.

Likewise, "Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania" is now slotted for release on 28 July, 2023 instead of 17 February (23), Variety reports.

Sources at Disney tell Variety the rescheduling is due to delays in production.

"Indiana Jones V" is also supported by Antonio Banderas, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Mads Mikkelsen, and Boyd Holbrook.

The new movie is directed by James Mangold ("The Wolverine", "Logan") while the original helmer Steven Spielberg, who directed the previous installments, serves as one of the producers.
